I'm new to this list. My apologies if this is not the right place to ask
(Point me to the right place otherwise)
That said, is there a way to force INN to create a newgroup when submitting a
control message? The documentation in 2.3.1 is less than clear. I know
ctlinnd will do it instantly. But messages posted are at the mercy of
nntpsend's cron interval.
The scenario is we're NOT going to use this NNTP server as a feed for usenet
news. Instead we're going to use it for personal/departmental discussion
groups. Purely local. So my thought is to have the client software be able
to send in a newgroup command as needs develop. But if they're going to sit
in queue it might not be workable (impatient lot, these users).
This also applies to rmgroup. However, I can live with rmgroup being queued.
It might be fair to say that waiting on rmgroup is a good failsafe against
said impatient users...
All access is authenticated via RADIUS. I suppose we're going to need to look
into LDAP next, as we need group ACLs too.
